Doctor Who Showrunner

The Showrunner is the person with overall creative control of a film or tv series. A new showrunner can radically alter the tone and cast of a film or tv series. It has been announced that Doctor Who will have a completely new showrunner. This could mean the new Doctor Who may be an actor previously unconsidered by fans and punters.

Doctor Who Viewing Figures

Since its heyday in the 1960 and 70's Doctor Who has gradually lost viewers, to a large degree this is to be expected as our viewing habits have radically changed with the arrival of on-demand and streaming services. 

The Christmas/New Year special drew in over 6 million but this is a long way off the 16 million who watched the series in 1979, with the latest series having some of the lowest viewing figures ever. 

ITV Strike

During a strike by the ITV network the BBC and Doctor Who flourished with 16 million viewers watching selected episodes of Tom Baker as the Doctor.

The arrival of Jodie Whitaker as the 13th Doctor split fans, some saw it as right and proper that we finally had a female Doctor, whilst others thought it was playing to these woke times in casting a female.

The storylines also became more PC for many Whovians who voted with their off buttons, although many younger viewers applauded the producers in trying to attract a new audience with challenging episodes.  

The appointment of a new Doctor has never been more crucial if the franchise is going to continue. 

Who would you like to see as the new Doctor Who?
